People have fought over money ever since it was invented. An Ohio divorce is often no different. Fighting over asset and debt division, spousal support and child support amounts can bring out the worst in two people who may have seemingly already reached the point of hostility. The wife of an elevator company CEO is said to be dragging out the divorce between the couple so that it is lasting longer than their 14-month marriage.
The reasons for taking a custody battle to an Ohio court are numerous. Parents get divorced and they fight over the child custody arrangements. The parents die and other relatives fight amongst themselves over who will gain guardianship. There may even be a child custody battle in a foster situation. One set of grandparents is questioning the placement of their 4-year-old grandson after his mother was murdered, allegedly by the boy's father.
Determining with which Ohio parent a child should live after a divorce is one of the most important decisions a court will make. The judge's decision in a child custody case must be based upon all evidence submitted and not just a few singled-out facts that may prove bias on behalf of one party. A father recently had an appellate court review an original judgment in his fight for child custody.
There is a lot of confusion about how divorce works, and the fact that laws differ from state to state does not help people understand it any better. What works in one state will not in another, and the same terms can have different meanings under different legal codes.
Some Ohio parents seeking custody of a child know what an uphill battle it can be. The child custody battle well worth fighting, however, sometimes ends happily for the parent who gives it his or her all. One father's quest for child custody has come to fruition after a harrowing beginning.
Money issues are said to be among the top reasons Ohio couples end their marriage. Many couples fight about money while they are married and they continue the fight after the divorce. Former NBA star Kevin Garnett and his wife, Brandi are fighting about prenuptial agreement details as they go through their divorce.
